CGiii Comment

Oscar nominee...and, what a question it asks!?!

A vivid film...both visually and psychologically.

But...the pessimism is never far off. Indeed, what is love? Is it what he says it to be?!?

The(ir) Blurb...

Against the backdrop of a noisy, smoke-filled café, a modern philosopher is lost in thought. Pondering on life's ups and downs, uncertain expectations, the mistakes of the past, and secret longings, the solitary man poses a puzzling existential question. Through a series of vivid poetic vignettes, the pensive man embarks on a journey of enlightenment, exploring the different phases of romance, the characteristics of human nature, and the future of dating and relationships. Indeed, we all want to love and be loved; however, has social media spawned a lazy generation? In the end, what is love in the 21st century?
